It would be really useful for me to be able to set the viewing percentsge to “actual size”. Something Apple’s Pages on iPad already does.
100% zoom is actually much smaller than real print size. What I end up doing is creating a 1cm square in Illustrator and aligning it with a physical ruler to get actual size.109 votes
EYEDROPPER SHORTCUT PLEASSEEEE (i) *just like desktop
Please please please give us a shortcut for eye dropper. I can’t fathom how this was overlooked. AI for iPad is virtually useless for me, and doubtless others, without it. Its nice to not be chained to my desktop for work.87 votes

Re-draw line in the pencil tool, like in desktop
In the desktop when you draw with the pencil over existing line it allow you to re-draw fro. That section on. I was really surprised this ability isn’t available in the first version- seems like a must for the iPad, and a big differentiator from procreate and raster tools73 votes

Free transform tool
Include a free transform tool that can actually transform selected shapes, groups etc. Similar to the free transform distort option in photoshop. The bounding box should not revert back to a rectangular box though it should remain distorted. This will make it much easier to distort artwork etc. to map to a specific plane.58 votes
Deselect on iPad
I looked around and didn't find a shortcut/gesture to deselect anything, especially after using the pencil tool, In the pencil tool on the desktop version, there is an option to choose whether you want to keep last drawn line selected, or to keep it unselected.
control for number of points on a star
The star tool doesn't have the ability to change the number of points like the polygon tool does. if you could add your star and then add multiple points and adjust the "pointyness" like the desktop app that would be good56 votes2 comments · Tools · Admin →
